I am in a similar situation.  We prepare frozen sections for in situ 
hybridization, but someone is now interested in paraffin sections.  I 
would like to know if RNAse inhibitors are needed in the water bath 
(and at what concentration) and at other junctures in the process 
before probe is applied.

Any information or references that can be provided would be greatly 

Thank you.
